Grote designs DRL for new Scania R-series

Grote Industries has designed an LED Daytime Running Lamp (DRL) for the new Scania R-series. The lamp represents Grote's solution to style, technology, and performance challenges set forth by Scania in conceptual stages of the design.

The sleek, four-diode design concept captured Scania's attention by delivering significant light output and by incorporating advanced heat management technology that made the enhanced performance and compact size possible. Scania was so impressed with Grote's conceptual work and prototypes that they made the decision to incorporate Grote's new lamp into the integrated bumper of the R-series.

Scania's new R-series range of trucks was selected as the International Truck of the Year 2010. The ITOY jury's statement cited the aerodynamic design of the R-series, which includes the streamlined grill and bumper design that incorporates Grote's DRL.

The new DRL emits Grote's LED WhiteLight beam. The lamps are available as an option and can also be purchased in the form of an aftermarket, retrofit product.
